Welcome to Codidact Meta!

Codidact Meta is the meta-discussion site for the Codidact community network and the Codidact software. Whether you have bug reports or feature requests, support questions or rule discussions that touch the whole network – this is the site for you.

Why not have a physics community for physics enthusiasts?

Although I still believe that launching new communities should be postponed and that a math & physics community is a better choice for the current state of Codidact, since a separate math community has been launched, let us have a physics community.

Physics is a natural science based on experiments, measurements and mathematical analysis with the purpose of finding quantitative physical laws for everything from the nanoworld of the microcosmos to the planets, solar systems and galaxies that occupy the macrocosmos.

If you enjoy reading articles about black holes, dark matter, extra dimensions, parallel universes, chaos, superconductivity, Big Bang, ..., you are likely to enjoy contributing to a physics community.

So, let us create it.

Right now we don't have a good way of identifying people who would help build a new community, so let's do this: if you are interested in helping to build this site, please leave a comment describing your level of interest (casual visitor, enthusiast, expert in this topic within the site's scope, something else?), or edit the post directly. I'll edit comments into the post later.

  • I'm a physics PhD student (Quantum Computing/Engineering specifically) and a mod on the Quantum Computing SE site. It's specific enough a topic that not everything I do is relevant for a physics site and not all of a physics site is relevant for me, but there's enough of an overlap for me to be interested in this — ‭Mithrandir24601

  • I’m interested in Physics as a hobbyist, had it as a advanced subject school and read some books about astronomy. Also got a telescope ;). — ‭luap42‭

  • I'm an astronomy PhD student (pulsars, mainly) and I'm active on Scientific Speculation as a mod and Mathematics as a regular user. I'd be interested, particularly if there's an astrophysics component to the site scope. — ‭HDE 226868‭

  • While physics and chemistry are distinct disciplines, they overlap heavily in fields such as thermodynamics, quantum mechanics, and astrophysics. As a chemistry major I'd have a lot to contribute to this site. — ‭DonielF
